There are so many choices that you can now have in sunglasses. You can look at different styles, different lenses such as polarized and anti-reflective, there are sport and performance sunglasses, you can have your prescription added to your sunglasses.
Don't forget about your children either. It is very important that they have the proper eye protection when out and about in the sun.

Sunglasses serve a much more important function than fashion and looks. They are a important tool in protecting your eyes from the harmful rays of the sun.
The most harmful of these rays are the ones known as Ultraviolet or UV. Within the Ultraviolet rays are three bands known as UVA, UVB and UVC. It is the UVB rays that cause the damage to your eyes.

When buying sunglasses you will want to find ones that have lens ratings for UVA and UVB rays. You should find sunglasses that provide 95% to 98% protection from the UVA and UVB rays.

When buying your new sunglasses, be sure to find a frame that fits comfortably on your head and face. Any frame that you pick out can be adjusted by our opticians for a more comfortable and secure fit.
